It's no secret that social media can be a big distraction for athletes in this day and age. One young star, who hasn't even played a game yet at the collegiate level, has already figured that out. Monday morning, Kentucky freshman-to-be Skal Labissiere posted an Instagram message, swearing off social media for the next two months as he starts to train and study at his new school. The 7-foot, 220-pound stud seems committed to focusing on his academics and his athletics, which Wildcats fans will surely love to hear.

Should more athletes do this sort of thing? Probably. We have a feeling that we'll hear a lot about him whether he's tweeting his thoughts or not.
